The Devon Association of Governance (DAG) is the association of school Governing Bodies, including Clerks, in the Devon Local Authority. It was formed in 1993 and is part of a nationwide network of Governing Bodies through membership of the National Governors’ Association.
Part of a nationwide network of Governing Bodies
Membership of DAG is automatic for all Governing Bodies of Local Authority maintained schools and acedemies. Individual governors and clerks are members by virtue of being members of a Governing Body which is itself a member.
The association has academy representatives on the DAG Board and is currently developing its relationship with Academies.
DAG aims to help governing bodies to further the interests of the children in our schools by:
Governing Bodies are directly represented in the election of a member at the Annual General Meeting. The DAG Board is elected by the AGM to further the interest of the Association. The officers and representatives of the Association are appointed by the Board. DAG also holds an annual Governors Conference, although a special Conference can be called to deal with urgent issues.
The DAG Annual General Meeting (AGM) is DAG’s highest decision-making body and usually convenes ordinarily once a year to approve the accounts and elect board members.
DAG’s accounts are published in the public domain, are audited externally and formally approved by the AGM each year.
